Let's do that Allison after 110 days of our nation's worst oil -- the well has been -- now authorities turning your attention to a possible crime scene at the bottom.
Of the gulf Rick Leventhal live in lake -- Mississippi.
With what this all means good morning to you Rick.
Good morning guys let's not forget that eleven people were killed when that deep water -- -- horizon explosion occurred back on April 20.
Dozens of investigations did begin immediately after there were congressional probe there were criminal and civil pros by the justice department of course.
Those -- continue and they need some key evidence including possibly that blowout prevent -- that it was.
May have caused the explosion and is still sitting well below the surface of the gulf waters meanwhile beat despite BP's claims that the government.
And government claimed that three quarters of the oil has been either -- burned off evaporated or otherwise dispersed.
The oil keeps coming ashore it's soiling beaches and booms and possibly according a lot of folks got -- causing significant environmental damage and we saw.
Boat after boat yesterday afternoon -- coming coming back to the dock here in lake shore wind bag after bag filled.
Would soiled containment boom that was blackened by oil.
In the water in Mississippi sound and nearby lake born and we also yesterday got exclusive video.
Of a disturbing scene near cat island thousands of dead fish floating on the water covering a -- square mile area.
There were -- bogeys and much larger red fish which is a -- delicacy they were.
Thirty inches or more -- and thirty pounds or more in -- they were.
As I said floating near cat island at about 1012 miles offshore here.
Also locals took us out on a boat and showed us a boom that they drag on the bottom of the goal.
They tell us that they think.
BP is dramatically under -- how much oil is still out here that the oil that was just -- on the surface simply floated to the bottom.
Where they say continues to cause real problems for shell fish and oysters and other sea life guys show well.
The road picture may be that the the oil well is contain the leak is contained in the cleanup continues there's still deal with a lot of issues done.
Here now that's that's a good reminder I'm loving your -- up plus all those who is stunning pictures of the dead.
Cash yeah and Rick Rick Leventhal live for us down in -- -- great point which is that that don't forget that.
Eleven people died in this explosion but perhaps BP forgot -- yesterday when they were touting this idea of getting back to drilling again perhaps in the very same reservoir.
Where this oil spill occurred in the first place now BP they'll flip -- a little bit later in the afternoon after they got some heat.
From the federal government making out with this -- -- saying what I'll be priests present focused.
He's entirely on the response effort in the Gulf of Mexico in the future use of the reservoir is not currently under consideration.
That flies in the face what they said earlier in the day.
Well yes there was a question posed to Doug settles now wasn't something he openly discussed at a meeting someone asked him a balanced.
Future use of that reservoir look the -- so there's a lot of crew down there.
Four billion dollars is the estimate left in that same -- war so they simply are saying.
We may at some point consider going back in and extracting some of that oil.
This is the company that I shareholders to please but as a goal from region to pay back has thousands of workers to get back out there and the -- And that those are all good things -- country it is easy to target them right now and say this is insensitive bad timing no doubt.
But at some point you do have to.
It just felt they just up premature and that given they hadn't yet finished the relief wells candidate senator -- just showed us haven't come close to cleaning up.
The spill in the gulf the idea that they want to get back to that four billion dollars with the crew and yes we -- to send -- some point they need to do that and that's oil that.
Needs to be -- brawl on the Cecil driving our cars but -- -- its goes and he took part of the priorities are ready -- because shouldn't they just be talking about helping the folks down there and cleaning up.
-- and in getting back to business at this hour.
And getting -- rig off the bottom of the sea floor and actually figuring out what went wrong we still don't know exactly who's to blame which company is to -- if you look at to see some stock prices yesterday was -- To watch Halliburton stock went up a little bit yesterday because it seems that they may be off the hook.
With -- with all of this other companies Anna Darko who is involved in this trans ocean watching their -- six.
Who's to blame in all this BP's stock trickles down trend since perhaps drops down.
Anadarko is goes up as people say women you might not be to blame well Anadarko Transocean had great weeks yes it looks like people have moved on from them and say they.
